Mr. Reiff graduated from Fordham University School of Law and was admitted to the New York Bar Association in 1981. He spent several years defending New York City against negligence law suits after his appointment to the Manhattan Trial Unit of the Office of the Corporation Counsel, City of New York. During this time, Mr. Reiff realized that his calling was to represent clients exclusively in personal injury cases.

Devon spent nearly 20 years with the law firm that would become Brecher, Fishman, Pasternack, Heller, Reiff, Walsh & Tilker, P.C. He led the firm’s Negligence Department through its fledgling beginnings until the firm enjoyed a prestigious reputation as a leading negligence trial law firm. In 2007, Devon resigned from his partnership and founded his own firm, Devon Reiff, P.C.

Pro bono/Community Service:

  • After 4 years of repeated pro bono legal work, including statutorily required actual written notices & complaints to the City of New York Department of Transportation I finally persuaded it to completely dig up, repave, and resurface the roadway at the intersection of East 72nd St. and Second Avenue in Manhattan.  Despite regular multiple asphalt patchwork the City would perform there, the roadway suffered from recurring deep and irregular potholes, bumps, & waves in the intersection roadway becoming dangerous to both pedestrians and drivers.  There is a very strong steam condition below the roadway.  Finally the City performed the one week, multi ton asphalt repaving job necesary to correct the condition.
